Beef Macaroni Soup (Beef Sopas)
SOPAS or MACARONI SOUP is one of the many popular breakfast soup dishes in the Philippines. I even already featured a macaroni soup recipe using CHICKEN but this time, I will be using ground lean beef in a creamy macaroni soup for a bowl packed with benefits of protein. Oh well, we all grew up loving Sopas cooked in many different ways, changed in many variations and added with different spices and vegetables. So I am very sure all will love this beefy version of macaroni soup.
2 tbsp. butter
250 grams ground lean beef
250 grams uncooked elbow macaroni
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped

1 small can of evaporated milk
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Saute garlic and onion. Add ground beef until meat starts to brown. Add water, then bring to full boil. Add elbow macaroni. Cook covered until macaroni is al dente, about 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Add carrots. Season with salt and pepper according to taste. Pour in the milk. Then, serve while hot.
